Fraxel and Hypopigmentation
Fraxel is a great laser for the right skin type and with the correct settings. I would highly recommend you stay completely out of the sun and use a great deal of sunblock. Please post a photo of yourself before these treatments. I can't tell from the photos if the rest of your skin hyper pigmented or the laser caused hypo pigmentation. I would return to your treating physician for consultation. For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with the Fraxel and lasers in general.
